I don't know anyone who doesn't have at least one horror story about hiring a service provider who didn't deliver. I have more than a couple myself. This is why I’m a big fan of Angie's List. Angie's List is a nationwide (U.S.A. and some parts of Canada) network of people just like you and me—except they talk to each other before hiring a provider to work on their home or lawn, provide healthcare or insurance, take care of pets or people, and more. If you want to know the real scoop on your local service providers, Angie's List has it—courtesy of customers who have worked with those same providers in the very recent past.
